7:18am
see the under pinning for the administration to do much more than nibble around the edges, maybe with background checks, when you look at the system in the 1993 brady law but not much more. in terms of -- basically forcing registration and more it may not be on secure legal ground to use executive records for-- orders for that. >> so the vice president spoke to the nra, is any progress being made? >> reporter: when you look at the nra they accused biden in their statement of attacking the second amendment. there is not much common ground between the nra and the administration. today in the video game issue representatives of the video game industry will be here after last night we members of the entertainment industry. there are a lot of people who
